January Transfer Window: The Players Linked To Newcastle United So Far



Newcastle United - Transfer Rumours and stories. Premier League

We are just three days away from 2023 and the opening of the January transfer window! Here are all the players linked with a move to Newcastle ahead of January 1st

Newcastle are flying high in the Premier League this season and currently sit 3rd in the table as we hit the midway point of the season.

Despite the incredible performances from his players up to now, Eddie Howe will be hoping Newcastle have added further depth to his squad come 1st February. Although, It’s unlikely that The Toon’s hierarchy will be looking to bring in players to go straight into the first eleven like they did last January.

There is a lot of uncertainty surrounding how much Newcastle will spend in January, with Financial Fair Play restrictions playing a major part in the available budget.

The Telegraph have provided an update that indicates The Magpies won’t be the biggest January spenders two years on the run. They explain that there is no pressure from the owners regarding qualifying for the Champions League this season, which suggests they may not be spend mass amounts to chase a spot in the top 4.

Enzo Fernández – Benfica

Enzo Fernández started in Argentina’s triumph over France in the World Cup Final and was awarded the Best Young Player at the tournament.

The midfielder is currently linked with the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool. Fabrizio Romano has reported that Fernández has a release clause worth €120,000,000.

The 21-year-old is currently one of the brightest young talents in world football, highlighted by his performances in the World Cup this winter.

Jorghino – Chelsea

The 31-year-old midfielder’s contract expires at the end of the season and would be open to to a potential move at the end of his contract. Chelsea have offered new terms but are yet to come to an agreement.

The Italian is also interested in a return to his native country, with his former side Napoli open to the move.

James Maddison – Leicester City

Another window can only mean one thing, more links to James Maddison. Newcastle have already had two bids rejected for the Leicester City playmaker back in the summer transfer window.

Toon had bids rejected worth up to £50,000,000 for the England international. The Foxes may be forced to cash in on Maddison either in January or the summer as the midfielder has just 18 months left on his contract.

Moisés Caicedo – Brighton

Yet another midfielder linked with a move to the North East. Newcastle are joined by Premier League rivals Liverpool and Manchester United with an interest in Caicedo.

Brighton reportedly value Caicedo in excess of £60,000,000 following his first-team breakthrough in the first half of this Premier League campaign.

The Telegraph are reporting that Eddie Howe is keen for a player like Caicedo to join in January due to Jonjo Shelvey’s continuous injury struggles.

Youri Tielemans – Leicester City

Like Maddison, Tielemans has been constantly linked with a move to St James’ Park. However, the Belgian’s contract expires at the end of the season.

Tielemans’ current contract could force Leicester to sell for a cut price in January to avoid the possibility of losing him for nothing in the summer.

Arsenal are also long term admirers of former Anderlecht man and are Toon’s main rivals to his signature.

Khvicha Kvaratskhelia – Napoli

Moving away from midfielders now, with Napoil winger Khvicha Kvaratskhelia. According to The Times, Napoli value the youngster at around £50,000,000.

In spite of interest from Newcastle and Manchester City, Napoli are looking to offer the Georgian a new contract which would double his current salary.

Memphis Depay – Barcelona

SPORT have reported Barcelona are ready to offer Memphis Depay to The Magpies in January.

Depay has only made just three appearances for the Spanish giants this season.

The Dutchman has also been linked with a return to Manchester United in January, with Barcelona keen to offload the forward before his contact expires in the summer.

Marcus Thuram – Borussia Mönchengladbach

Thuram is another one in a contract prediciment with his current club as his contract is due to expire in the summer and is keen to explore his options away from Borussia Mönchengladbach.

Newcastle, Inter, Juventus and Manchester United have all been accredited with an interest in Thuram, with Inter reportedly willing to offer the forward a huge €5,000,000 a year.

The 25-year-old was involved in France’s progression to the World Cup Final with a few impressive cameos off the bench, including the final.

Malo Gusto – Lyon

Mail Online understand that Newcastle have joined Manchester United in the race for Lyon full-back Malo Gusto.

Gusto, who is just 19-years-old, is one of Lyon’s biggest assets and are currently valuing him at £35,000,000.

It is thought that Gusto would be brought in to be an understudy to current first-choice right-back, Kieran Trippier.

Newcastle target rejects Everton move following £45m bid.



Newcastle united - St James Park

Everton have made a £40million bid with £5m in add-ons to sign Connor Gallagher from Chelsea.

This comes after Newcastle completed the signing of Anthony Gordon, the club’s second most expensive transfer behind Alexander Isak.

Everton received an initial fee of £40m plus add-ons that could increase the deal to £45m.

The Toffees currently sit 19th in the Premier League and are looking to reinvest the money from the Gordon deal to sign much-needed players under newly appointed manager Sean Dyche. 

But, multiple sources have reported today that Gallagher is not actively pushing for a move and has no intention of going to Goodison Park. However, with Chelsea having met the record-breaking €120m release clause for World Cup winner Enzo Fernandez, Gallagher may be forced to leave the club if the transfer is complete.

This leaves Newcastle an option as the player would prefer a move to a top-six club.

This morning, Eddie Howe said, “We’ll see what we can do to try & bring a player in. There’s no guarantees. In terms of permanent signings, it will be very difficult. We’ll look at a potential loan. But it’s got to be the right player & not one for the sake of it”.

Due to financial fair play, the only way Newcastle could sign the player is through a loan, with an obligation to buy the player for at least £45m, the same price they paid for Anthony Gordon.

Gallagher has been playing regular Premier League football over the last two seasons. Since returning to his parent club Chelsea, the 22-year-old has been linked with a move away to numerous Premier League clubs.

Last season he was named Crystal Palace’s Player of the Season by their fans. He also won the Player of the Month award twice, Goal of the Month once, and was awarded the Young Player of Year at the 2022 London Football Awards.

In the same season, he made 36 appearances scoring eight goals and registering three assists that earned Palace a 12th-place finish, one point behind Newcastle.

Transfer News: Newcastle Sign Everton Winger Anthony Gordon In 45m Deal



Newcastle agree deal for Gordon

Newcastle United have agreed to sign Everton winger Anthony Gordon for an initial fee of £40,000,000, which could rise to £45,000,000 with add-ons

Sky Sports understands that personal terms between Newcastle United and Gordan’s representatives are still ongoing, but both parties are confident of reaching an agreement.

The Magpies’ were interested in bringing Gordon to St James’ Park in the summer. However, both clubs were far apart on valuations for the player.

The 21-year-old has failed to attend training at Finch Farm for the last three days after making it clear he wants to move away from Goodison Park.

Chelsea were interested in bringing Gordon to Stamford Bridge in the summer and were willing to pay up to £60,000,000 for the wide-man’s services. However, Everton were reluctant to let their talisman leave before the start of the 2022/2023 Premier League season.

Gordon has scored just 3 goals in 16 Premier League appearances (12 starts) this season for the struggling Toffees, who currently sit second bottom of the table.

That said, the former Preston North End loanee had his best campaign last season, playing a major part in Everton’s Premier League survival.

The Everton academy graduate had 6 goal involvements in 35 Premier League games (25 starts) last season, which was the first season he had a consistent run of games.

It’s clear that Gordon has a significant amount of potential, and with Eddie Howe at the helm, Newcastle could be getting a very exciting player.

We have seen an unbelievable transformation in many players’ performances since Eddie Howe took charge in November 2021, with the most obvious transformation being Joelinton’s positional change.

The Liverpool-born winger can play in several forward positions, which is the type of player Eddie Howe has been keen to add during the January window, especially after Chris Wood’s loan departure to Nottingham Forest.

Joelinton is currently being deployed as a left-winger, with Allan Saint-Maximin in the process of regaining match fitness.

The addition of Gordon could see Joelinton be moved back to his preferred position as a box-to-box midfielder. This would see one of Sean Longstaff or Joe Willock drop out of the eleven, with Bruno Guimarães making that number 6 role untouchable.

Four days remain of the January transfer window, and it is yet to be seen if Anthony Gordon is the only player The Toon are adding to their ranks.
